I was asked if I’d like to review something from the website Gifted people and I happily agreed. I’m even happier now I’ve received my choice of review product…a fabulous bespoke handbag with POLKA DOTS and FLOWERS! Sorry to make you jealous but it’s gorgeous and it’s MINE! 🙂 If you read My Mummy Reviews you will know how much I love everything with polka dots and floral prints…I’m addicted!

Well…let me tell you about Gifted People. It is the most unique ‘gift’ website I have ever seen. It is primarily for those of you who are buying a gift for someone who lives in Scotland or if you yourself live in Scotland and want to buy yourself a gift.  I however do not live in Scotland so at first I didn’t think there would be any gifts or experiences I could buy to review however there are a few options available to myself and those of you who do not live in Scotland.

The website is divided up into different categories of gift. There are ‘Experiences’, Learning gifts’, ‘Useful gifts’ and ‘Arts and Crafts gifts’.  A lot of these gifts ‘experiences’ are local to Scotland and that is why I couldn’t buy them but there are some that can be bought and posted. I opted for a ‘small tote bag’ from CB Totes at the price of £25. I got to request the colour, handle style, etc. It would be made to order and it would be personalised to my specification. You buy the gift voucher / gift through the Gifted People website but then you contact the supplier directly regards the personalisation of the gift.

These are the details I sent to Claire of CB Totes regards my small tote bag:-

I absolutely love polka dots and vintage floral prints. My favourite kind of prints are Cath Kidston such as ‘regal rose’  and ‘spray flowers’.  I would like the bag to have two short handles so I can hang it over the pushchair handles.

When the bag arrived about a week later I was gobsmacked! It was fantastic and 100% what I would have chosen if I was out shopping for a handbag. Claire had included a lovely card to say thanks for ordering and to say she hoped I liked the polka dot and floral bag.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say THANKYOU to Gifted People for sending me the gift voucher to spend and to Claire for making the bag…It’s perfect! I don’t often treat myself to things like handbags, mainly because I have so many, but this one you made for me will be treasured. The handles are comfy to hold and fit really well over the pushchair handles and the fabric is just so ‘ME’.  I am going to a party next week and I will be using your handbag with my outfit. You do the Gifted people website proud. On the About Us page of the website it says the following :-We want your gift to be cherished and bragged about – not forgotten or passed on to a charity shop.  The small tote bag you sent to me fits the bill perfectly.

I would like to see more of this kind of website for all different parts of the country. There is an extensive FAQ page on the Gifted People website.

An example of a local ‘useful’ gift would be for you to buy someone in Glasgow an Ironing voucher entitling them to have 40 items collected, ironed and then delivered back to them.  If you would like to see which gifts are available in which area please click here.
